Permit for transporting fish house on road

Recommended Posts

I read somewhere yesterday that fish houses would need a permit for transporting on road if they were beyond a certain length/width. But I can't seem to find it now. Has anyone else seen this?

Chemist,
My house is not legal for transporting but I ran lights to the back of the house and drive on the shoulder with the emergency flashers on. When I first got the house, I drove it from Glenwood to Waconia, going no faster than 35-40 miles an hour on the shoulder. pulling off every few miles to let the traffic go by... I was passed by many State patrol and county sheriffs, and never got a second glance.
I will never again drive my house to a location more than 2 miles from where I store the house. I think most police will overlook the illegal size as long as you try to be safe and use your flashers, and aren't driving on a major road. I think putting a slow moving vehicle sign would help also.

I thought that the article I read it in was like a press release from the State Patrol or something. I'll have to check some more if I can find it.

I don't believe you need a permit. But you should move the house during DAYLIGHT HOURS.

i drive truck and i know for sure, that if you have anything ... over either 104" or 108"(i'll check tommorrow) you must have a permit. i know people that have been ticketed for no permit while in transport of there fishouse. i think you can get around it though if you put a slow moving vehicle placard on it. but you cannot go faster than the regs for slow moving vehicle allow.

I pulled my sleeper house up to MilleLacs this spring and pulled an oversized permit for it. The permit is only $15, which i think is worth the piece of mind and it sure beats paying a fine which i think is fairly steep on oversized loads. You can get one faxed over to you in about 10 minutes from the D.O.T. Just have all of your information ready: trailer make,model,length, overall dimensions of the load, trailer weight, total weight, piece count and route of travel. You can get the phone # from the D.O.T. HSOforum. Hope this helps.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
